Tuesday Top 10: Favorite Things (except it’s Wednesday!)

It's March! I don't know if it's because we just moved in December or what, but I feel like 2019 is just whizzing by so quickly. We are in a new season around here for sure, and in just six months I will have two kids in school for six hours a day. It's different, and has really put into perspective for me how quickly time with little kids flies by. So, if you've noticed I have been around less…

Finding More Confidence!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #DoMoreForYourWholeMouth #ColgatePartner #CollectiveBias Moving is such a hard thing to do, building community in a new community is so stressful. I’ll be vulnerable here and say it can be really easy to just hang out at home and just withdraw. This is most likely our forever home, so even though it’s tricky to put yourself out there and start to build a community.…

Tuesday Top 10: Redbox Edition

I love watching movies. I find it so relaxing, so I thought why not make a fun blog post on my favorite movies on Redbox right now. Plus, I think a good redbox at home date night is so nice when the kids have gone to bed! (Don't forget you can find find promo codes for free movie rentals online!) Be sure to hop over to Ms. Bishop's page and see what she's sharing for her TT10 this week! 1)…

Tuesday Top 10: Reading Edition

You may have noticed I've been shifting gears here on the blog: I can't even identify my niche right now. I'm in a transition, heading in the direction of simply sharing my favorite things and hopefully you guys hang around! Right now, our days are filled with school, homework, sport practices, fishing, cleaning, and cooking, I know it's not super glamorous or exciting, but it's where I'm at. I keep finding myself at the end of day thinking, "what a…

Our Stay At King & Prince- St. Simons Island 2019

Disclosure: We were provided with a complimentary stay to conduct a review and provide our readers with tips and inspiration for planning their trip to King & Prince. All opinions expressed are my own! I absolutely loved this resort, only an hour and half away from Jacksonville-- it made for the perfect trip over the long weekend! (We visited on President's Day weekend.) The last couple of months have been a whirlwind for our family. The cross country move, the…

Day Trip To Nehalem Bay, Oregon!

We recently went up the Nehalem Bay, our favorite crabbing spot here in Oregon.  We love getting outdoors to fish, clam, and/or crab.  If you're in Portland and looking for a dreamy day trip, I have nothing but incredible things to say about Nehalem Bay.  Maybe you're visiting Oregon and looking a unique experience! We like to drive up and head straight to Kelly's Brighton Marina.   You can rent boats for less than a 100.00 per two hours, they also sell shell…

March 2019 Reading List!

I know so many of us start every year hoping to make reading more of a priority.  Summer is an excellent time to make that goal happen, because the days are longer and your kids are outside more.  It is a great time to invite friends over for a deck book club evening, or meet up poolside with all your littles and attempt to discuss some great reads.  I thought I'd share some book recommendations for the summer (some I've…

Frugal Friday: Why You Need A “Gift Closet”

So, I really sat the intention to get back into deal blogging this year! Personal finance is something I care so much about, and over the years I feel like I've gotten away from it.  For me, it has been one of those topics I can never tell if people read or not.  BUT.. whatever, I love personal finance, I love good deals, and I love doing it simply and easily so that saving money doesn't also become something that…
